Police bar right-wing activists from entering east Jerusalem neighborhood

Six right-wing activists were detained by police on Wednesday after trying to enter the Shuafat refugee camp in east Jerusalem, police said. The six were taken into custody at the entrance to the camp. One of the six was subsequently placed under arrest after assaulting a police officer, Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said. The rightist group, which has repeatedly tried to enter the area in the last few weeks, says that there is Jewish property inside the Arab district which they want to claim.
